Seven Springs is a retreat center featuring seven natural springs on 126 acres of private land in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Near Maryville, Tennessee, Seven Springs is located within 500 miles of 75% of the U.S. population. The land is also some of the most ecologically diverse in the country. The high elevations of the Smoky Mountains are a temperate rain forest with over 17,000 species of plants and animals. The incredible biodiversity of the region adds to the abundant richness of Seven Springs.

Our land is located 15 minutes south of Maryville, 20 minutes from the TYS international airport, and less than an hour from Knoxville, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cherohala Skyway, Tuckaleechee Caverns, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Hwy 129 The Dragon, and Dollywood.

Nearby attractions
We encourage you to explore this fascinating region before or after the course. Many of these outdoor attractions are only a short drive away. Here are a few we recommend:

Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Located less than 25 miles from Seven Springs is the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited National Park in the U.S.! On your way you will drive through Townsend with a wonderful Visitors Center and Heritage Center we recommend visiting. Cades Cove is a beautiful 11 mile loop to drive any day or bike on Wednesday and Saturday mornings when it is closed to cars. Abrams Falls is a nice 5 mile hike from Cades Cove.

Look Rock Fire Tower
Located on the Foothills Parkway, Look Rock Fire Tower is a short and windy drive up the mountain from Seven Springs. This National Park Service fire lookout tower is at the top of an easy half-mile hike up to a breathtaking 360 view of the Smoky Mountains and surrounding countryside. You can see the Fire Tower from Seven Springs and even see Seven Springs from the Fire Tower!

A nearby nature education center located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this area is fun to visit for information and connect to some good trailheads! Enjoy our favorite moderate waterfall hike, Spruce Flats Falls and visit the gift shop for wonderful books for all ages. You can also hike for miles along the end of the road beside the Little River with beautiful cascading waterfalls.

Mount Leconte
If you’re looking for a more challenging and longer hike, we recommend this one. Plan for a full day and bring lots of water. There are a few trails to choose from and a Lodge at the top if you’d like to spend the night (reservations required). We like the Alum Cave Bluff trail; it is steeper, shorter and more difficult, but the Bluffs are a must see on your way up.

Cherokee National Forest
About a 45 minute drive, there a many places to hike, fish, camp, kayak and white water raft on the Ocoee River, site of the 1996 Olympic white water kayaking events!

Abrams Creek Trail
This is the closest National Park trailhead to Seven Springs. It provides many beautiful trails filled with lush vegetation and classic hiking along streams and Hemlock forests. You can even hike all the way to Abrams Falls if you have all day!

Chilhowee Lake
About 20 minutes away is a beautiful lake nestled in between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Cherokee National Forest. Chilhowee Lake offers excellent boating, fishing and kayaking. The backwaters offers some of the most beautiful calm water kayaking around.

Highway 129 The Dragon
Just down the road is state highway 129. Known as The Dragon, it includes 11 miles boasting 318 curves spanning from Foothills Parkway in Tennessee to Deal's Gap in North Carolina. Needless to say this is a motorcycle and sportscar mecca.

One of the best ways to enjoy the river in the mountains on a hot day is to go to tubing! There are many tubing companies in Townsend that will rent you tubes and drop you off and pick you up on the river. We recommend just stopping at any of them, they offer deals of $8 up.
